NEW MANUAL RELEASED v4.0
We hope this edition clears up any rule questions or issues from the older manual edition previously released. A lot of the confusion was due to the translation of the original Japanese to English and we hope this manual clears that up.
The Pacific War - From Pearl Harbor to the Philippines (hereafter referred to as The Pacific War), two players face off in an epic struggle for control of the Pacific. From December 1941 to June 1944, the Japanese player maneuvers his forces against the Allied forces of the United States, Great Britain, Australia, and the Netherlands. With Aircraft Carriers, Battleships, Cruisers, and Land-Based Aircraft, each player plans and conducts strategies out of a limited hand of Resource Cards in order to gain Initiative, defeat his enemy’s forces, and control crucial Ports and Bases across the Pacific. The Japanese are at their strongest at the start of the game, but the Allies gain power and resources each turn. Few would debate Japan’s chances of victory, but the goal of The Pacific War is to see whether the Japanese forces can achieve more than their historical counterparts, delaying its defeat. Or, can the Allies win a faster victory? It’s up to the players to turn the tide of the War!
